Whitespace is the space that is placed between TV channels to give the stations a buffer so they aren’t trying to broadcast on top of each other. The problem with whitespace is that it wastes lots of very valuable spectrum that is particularly well suited to streaming high-bandwidth content through walls and across long distances.

Cambridge Consultants is showing off a new cognitive radio at CES that can search for unused stations and whitespace in a home and use that space to stream HD video and other content around the home. The radio uses whitespace at around 600MHz and has a new radio that can transmit in the 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 600MHz frequency ranges.

The radio is called InCognito and can detect and avoid any broadcasts already using the spectrum available. The new tech will make it easier to stream bandwidth intensive content around home without worrying about walls.
